    Do you find yourself struggling with changing your behavior? Real learning is hard, but keeps you from making the same mistake again.

    I wrote this article a few months ago: Sorry, I Don't Love Learning

    Have you seen this scene in the Matrix?

    I mentioned the book Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell*
    Practical Advice
    1. Ensure that it’s something important for you to learn

    I mentioned the book Soar With Your Strengths by Donald Clifton and Paula Nelson*

    2. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable

    “When you are tough on yourself, life is going to be infinitely easier on you.” -Zig Ziglar

    3. Recognize that what you’ve been able to change your behavior on is really challenging for others

    “Every single time I get on a plane I’m really glad that the plane is not being flown by someone who just always loved planes.” -A teacher quoted in Building A Better Teacher by Elizabeth Green*.
